Warner Archive Releasing Extended Version of 1978’s ‘The Swarm’ on Blu-ray

Featuring a new 1080p remaster, Irwin Allen’s The Swarm heads to Blu-ray as part of the Warner Archive Collection, the upcoming Blu-ray detailed ahead of a September release.

The Blu-ray will contain the 156-minute extended version of the film.

Special Features include:

  • Behind The Scenes Documentary
  • Inside the Swarm
  • Theatrical Trailer (HD)

In The Swarm, producer/director Irwin Allen (The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno) unleashed an end-of-the-world thriller based on scientific fact – Killer Bees -then active in Africa and South America, were on the move…into North America!

There are enough stars for five movies – Michael Caine, Katharine Ross, Richard Widmark, Olivia de Havilland, Henry Fonda, Fred MacMurray, Richard Chamberlain, Jose Ferrer, Patty Duke Astin, Lee Grant and Bradford Dillman. But the scene-stealers are the supporting cast: an estimated 22 million bees, deftly deployed to depict deadly attacks on people and places. It’s a nightmare that will give you quite a buzz!
